Editorial Reviews

Review

“The 1965 voting rights address (widely known as the “We Shall Overcome” speech) was Lyndon Johnson’s most eloquent. While sensitive to the speech’s limitations, Garth Pauley masterfully explains its power: the moral force of the civil rights movement and the politics of the Johnson administration joined at an opportune moment, and the president’s rhetorical choices constituted that moment as unique, urgent, and transcendent. This study is a model of how archival research can illumine the history and criticism of public discourse.”--David Zarefsky, Owen L. Coon Professor of Communications Studies, Northwestern University
(David Zarefsky, Owen L. Coon Professor of Communications Studies, Northwestern U)

More About the Author

After receiving my Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University (1999), I began a career as a professor at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where I've been ever since. Until recently, my primary research specialization has been American civil rights rhetoric. But I have begun writing about American religious oratory during the colonial era. I hope to finish a short book about Jonathan Edwards's famous "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" sermon in the next couple of years.
